Publisher's Summary

Indy Savage is a former wild child (okay, maybe not so "former") and current used-bookstore owner. Lee Nightingale is a former bad boy and now runs a private investigation service. Toss together a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side-business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will not mind their own business, a few stun guns, and a bag of diamonds, and mix them all up with some shootings, a high-speed chase and car bombs exploding, then hang on for your first wild Rock Chick ride.

Love this book!

Admittedly I have been on a kick lately with rock and roll books so when I saw "Rock Chick" I thought, oh cool it's about a girl band, awesome....that will show me not to read the synopsis! This book has little to nothing to do with rock and roll or even music.

This is the story of Indy Savage...cool name for a rocker, BUT she is actually a 30 year old woman who owns a used book store, but she has "rock chick" attitude! I guess the author didn't want to use the title of "Free Spirit Chick", or "Hippie Chick", or "New Age Chick"...and I have to say "Rock Chick" fits her. This character is SOOO much fun to listen to, the narrator was absolutely perfect!

A typical day for Indy is going to her store, watching her coffee guy have an artist melt down...because you have to be an artist to make coffee THAT good...hanging out with her best friend Ally and generally getting into all kinds of mayhem...not of her own doing of course, these things just seem to happen to her, she has no idea why! She has been in love with her best friends older brother since the age of 5 but gave up on him 10 years ago when he shot her down for like the 20th time...she has made a nice life for herself and just seems like she would be a lot of fun to be around...and to be honest she must have been a joy to write.

Liam Nightingale, a.k.a Lee, is Ally's older brother, and the focal point of Indy's crush...he was in special forces and now runs a PI firm...and he is alpha hot swoon worthy. He has a good life but he has never been able to get past wanting Indy, but their timing has always been off. When he finds her in his bed running from some bad guys he strikes a deal with her.....she stays safe and he gets her....the problem is Indy is NOT okay with his sudden about face, I mean she has been avoiding him at all family functions for at least 10 years so this is just confusing!

This book was SOOO funny, I laughed so hard it hurt, and I could just imagine these characters would be a blast to hang out with. Well written, perfectly narrated, WONDERFUL book! Not too fluffy, not too serious, just the right amount of steam, without being an intense book it kept me wanting to hear what happened next from chapter one.

Love love love this book! If you are in need of a great listen that won't drag you down you HAVE to buy this book :- )

Fluffy, formulaic series

Fluffy and fun, the first book (and best) in a series of love stories is enjoyable and fairly well written. Indy Savage owns a used-bookstore/cafe where an amusing group of friends gathers regularly. Indy meets Lee Nightingale who owns a private investigation company. Lee moves in, after knowing Indy since childhood, as he protects her from a crazy succession of attacks caused by the side business of a cafe employee. Some grammatical problems, but because it's written in first person, this could be intentional.

About the series: I have listened to books 1 - 6 and found each one a repeat of the first love story. In fact, the love interests from one book to the next are so closely matched in characteristics that the author must have copied some of the dialog word-for-word. Still, they offer adequate entertainment, especially if you listen to other authors in between listening to books in this series.

Great Start.....Lost interest halfway through!!!!

Would you try another book from Kristen Ashley and/or Susannah Jones?

I liked SJ. She is not my number one but I can say she is within my top 10 narrators. This is my second KA book, and I am not looking to try a third anytime soon which is a shame because she has potential!

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Lee came off as a jerk. Indie came off as a child.

Which scene was your favorite?

Hank, Indie and the Kevster and a whole lot of pot plants.

Did Rock Chick inspire you to do anything?

Nope. Just a book that went from great to boring.

Any additional comments?

Careful, this is a very girly-type book with one too many OMG's and Holy sh* sh* sh*. The female characters will make you want to say "are you kidding me!" Their antics started of as funny then turned to annoying. The guys all have issues and seem very detached and quite frankly jerks.

The blurb for this book doesn't do it justice...

There was indeed a drag queen, a crazy Vietnam vet (whom I think was my favorite), a pothead, and many, many other great characters in this book that kept you on your toes and laughing out loud for a good part of the book. Indy was a great female lead and her story with Liam is fun, exciting, and has the perfect amount of adventure. This all sounds like a lot to keep up with, but it was not at all overwhelming. I would describe this book as lighthearted with a little bit of intensity. I would definitely want to be best friends with Sophie and the men were all smoking hot. I'm looking forward to many more Rock Chick adventures.
Susannah Jones was perfect for this book and I hope she narrated more in this series. I loved her. She projected a strong female character with some humor and also did well with the male interpretations.

Engaging characters but I struggled through.

Ok plot hindered by authors limited vocabulary and descriptors. Prepare to be inundated with "full frontal", "inside me", "holy hell", "omg" , and "melty" interspersed with very few other words.

Thououghly Fun!

Rock Chicks, Book 1, by Kristen Ashley was a surprise to me. I'm not sure why because I have enjoyed several of Kristen's books. I will start by saying that I didn't love the cover...and that made me a bit skeptical, and even hesitant to begin. But when I did...to my delight, I discovered a light-hearted, lol, funny diversion from several of her other books.

A little reminiscent of "Stephanie Plum"...including a hilariously witty protagonist named Indie, missing diamonds, lots of clever antics; a motley collection of characters that I just loved, and, of course, hot Alpha's...I have already pre-ordered Book 2 which will be on audio June 10, 2014!

Enjoy this book! It is definitely Credit Worthy!

One of my favs

What did you love best about Rock Chick?

The funny loving crazy mixed family.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Rock Chick?

All of it never a dull moment.

What does Susannah Jones bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She read it in a way you could she the movie playing in your head. Wonderful.

Any additional comments?

I love the whole series but this is the beginning of my love affair. Hope the rest come out on audio.

OMG!!!! ROCK CHICKS!!!!

Rock Chicks!!! I have been a fan of the series for freaking EVAH! So having the first book of the series is like every birthday, anniversary, and Christmas all rolled into one!

Kristen Ashley writes with depth and a keen sense of comedic wit.

Of course being a good writer does NOT a good audio book make! Kristen Ashley paired with Susannah Jones does!

One of the things that I love about Ms. Ashley's books is her strong characters, from the main characters to the support or secondary characters. They are distinctive and most definitely colorful! So that means you NEED to have a storyteller who can keep up!

Ms. Jones brings it in a big way! She does an excellent job making each of the characters' voices unique and with plenty of emotion, she makes Rock Chick sing!!!!

Bite-Sized and Sweet

This was the first Romance-type piece I've listened to; I skeptically picked it up on sale. But, ya know, it was silly and pleasant the whole way through. This isn't going to go down as an instant classic, but it's an easy listen for anyone who's a fan of Romance but not of becoming overly involved in a complicated soap opera story. There's apparently a series of these "Rock Chicks" already out, so if you enjoy this one, and want more, you won't have to wait. Otherwise, this was a pleasant standalone.
